Canadian Neurovascular Health Society Presents

Lifestyle Pathways to Better Health

August 22 - 27, 2021

The Canadian Neurovascular Health Society is ready to assist patients with diet and lifestyle change in an intensive, comprehensive 5-day retreat designed to better manage multiple sclerosis and other neurodegenerative diseases. Diet and lifestyle programs developed by Dr. Ashton Embry, Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. George Jelinek, and Italian researchers show improved health despite an underlying progressive neurodegenerative disease. We will present these four nutritional approaches, explain the science and rationale behind each, support individuals as they choose the diet best for their needs, and provide menu planning and meals that are consistent with these evidence-based diets.

In addition, rehabilitation with multiple sclerosis has the potential to stop progression and reverse damage in day-to-day functions. Research supports the use of strength and aerobic training in persons with neurodegeneratve diseases to counter fatigue, increase strength and mental sharpness, and improve functional activities of daily living. Finally, mindfulness is established in research as a cornerstone of wellbeing and rehabilitation. Accordingly, we will incorporate exercise, mindfulness and yoga into the daily retreat schedule to help individuals establish lasting behaviours.

Diet and lifestyle can have profound effects on the trajectory of a chronic illness (as pointed out about 2,500 years ago by Hippocrates). There is no downside to adopting diet and lifestyle change by patients with neurodegenerative diseases and the potential benefits are monumental.

As patients well know, time is brain. 


Patients and partners are invited to join us for 5 full days of knowledge empowerment, mindfulness, diet counselling and exercise at the spectacular Honeymoon Bay Lodge and Retreat Centre on Vancouver Island. This idyllic retreat centre will be dedicated to our small group of patients and facilitators. Lifestyle change involves more than just the patient; thus, partners, if applicable, are encouraged to attend.

Limited to 24 participants, this retreat is designed for those facing a neurolovascular health challenge, whether it be early in progression or at a time when a re-boot is needed. Although the diets we will present have been researched in the multiple sclerosis community, they are applicable to anyone with a health condition that involves neurological and/or vascular symptoms. We will encourage people to see beyond the label of a particular disease and begin to focus on repair, rehabilitation, and rejuvenation.

The facility is fully accessible, however, there is only one room with a roll-in shower available. Please contact us if you need this room.


We will present four scientifically-researched diet and lifestyle programs:

  • Best Bet diet - Dr. Ashton Embry, Canada
  • The Wahls Protocol - Dr. Terry Wahls, USA
  • OMS diet - Dr. George Jelnick - Australia, England and Ireland
  • High vegetable/low protein (HV/LP) diet - MS Rehabilitation Unit, Don Carlo Gnocchi Foundation in Milan, Italy

We assembled a team of expert facilitators who will help patients and their partners achieve their health goals every step of the way.

Cost is $1697 (Canadian) based upon double occupancy. Patients attending without partners will be assigned a roommate based on selected criteria. If you know the name of your desired roommate, please indicate it on your registration form. The ticket price has already been discounted based on sponsorships and donations. We anticipate reducing the price even more for all participants by the start of the retreat.

Please contact us to inquire about additional subsidies for those in financial need.
